It’s Funny 25 Time, kids!

The best part about the holidays is the annual Dr. Demento Funny 25!

This is my annual obsessive-compulsive update to the Top 100 (or so) Demented Hits (from Funny 25’s) using the countdown.

With its 13th place finish, “Dead Puppies” widened its lead over “Fish Heads” as the number one most requested song of all time.

Travis Meyer’s “The Devil Went To Jamaica” moved up from 14th to 12th. “Cows With Guns” moved up from 21 to 19. Weird Al’s “The Night Santa Went Crazy” went from 32 to 29. And because of all the ties at the bottom of the list, “Stealing Like A Hobbit” leapfrogged from 84 to 52 in its second year on the chart.

The new songs that were added to the 100 were this year’s number 2, “Sirius Black” by Tony Goldmark and the 2004 Number One most requested song–“Great Idea For A Song” by the Worm Quartet.

Here are the 2004 Funny 25 (with more obsessive-compulsive linky goodness added):
